People's Association funds and assist with PAP town councils with their maintenance

People's Association funds and assist with PAP town councils with their maintenance work.

(e.g. Installation and refill of sanitizer bottles inside HDB lifts).

Does the PAP government fund opposition constituencies Town councils with PA funds and assistance as well?

Can losing PAP candidate and PAP-PA Adviser to grassroots organisations, Victor Lye https://mothership.sg/2020/07/pap-al...grc-broadcast/ , please declare how much he has sponsored the Aljunied Town Council with PA funds and assistance, besides using these funds to print political banners and posters advertising himself and his privileged (vz his politically based PA appointments ) access to state funds?

$4k fine for man who took bottles of sanitiser from lift

He also dumped contents of bottles placed inside lift for residents of Bishan HDB block, tore down posters

A man took home bottles of hand sanitiser placed inside a lift, which were meant for residents of a Bishan Housing Board block.

On other occasions, he emptied their contents onto the floor of the same lift.

When confronted, Low Ken Lum claimed that he wanted to disinfect the area.

But investigations showed that he also tore posters placed inside the same lift, insisting they were not properly affixed.

The 50-year-old Singaporean was fined $4,000 on Friday after pleading guilty to two counts of mischief.

The court heard that Low had emptied a bottle of hand sanitiser placed inside lift A at Block 182 Bishan Street 13 at around 4.30pm on March 21. He dumped the contents on the floor.

Low also tore down two posters from the lift wall and flung them onto the floor before stepping out of the lift.

It emerged that Low committed a similar act in the same lift at around 11am six days later, Deputy Public Prosecutor Tan Wee Hao said.

It was not stated if he lives in the same block.

Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council received multiple feedback reports in March about the posters and the damaged bottles of hand sanitiser.

Low's acts were eventually captured on a closed-circuit television camera, prompting a town council officer to alert the police on April 1.

Low admitted during the investigation that he had also taken some sanitiser bottles home for his own use.

DPP Tan told District Judge Carol Ling on Friday that Low's offences caused wrongful loss to the town council, which had to put up new posters, and the People's Association as it had to replace the hand sanitiser bottles.

Deputy Public Prosecutor Tan Wee Hao told District Judge Carol Ling on Friday that Low Ken Lum's offences caused wrongful loss to the town council, which had to put up new posters, and the People's Association as it had to replace the hand sanitiser bottles.

The DPP added that the four posters cost about $5 each, while the bottles of hand sanitiser were of an unknown value.

Low, who has made no restitution, pleaded for leniency yesterday.

For each count of mischief, an offender can be jailed for up to two years and fined.

A version of this article appeared in the print edition of The Straits Times on July 27, 2020, with the headline '$4k fine for man who took bottles of sanitiser from lift'.
